Mercer Capital supports the new credential for valuation professionals whose practices are dedicated to valuing businesses and intangible assets for U.S. public companies. The CEIV™—Certified in Entity and Intangible Valuations™—is now available to current or prospective members of the American Society of Appraisers (ASA), the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), or the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
Travis W. Harms, CFA, CPA/ABV, leader of Mercer Capital’s Financial Reporting Group, commented, “Over the past decade, valuation professionals have been given an increasing role in measuring the fair value of assets for public companies. The CEIV demonstrates the valuation profession’s commitment to meeting this responsibility in the best interests of the investing public.”
